Drones are small automated flying platforms employed primarily by the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation, serving in an aerial recon role and providing light support for infantry or performing maintenance in otherwise impossible-to-reach areas. There are several variants seen on the battlefields of the Frontier.
Search Drones are drone types employed by the IMC in a reconnaissance role. They primarily exist to seek out and identify targets of interest. Several such drones were employed during the Battle of Angel City, in the hunt for Robert "Barker" Taube.
